TCP or other protocols can sometimes build "standing queues" in the network: buffers that are filled to a certain level but never allowed to drain because data continuously comes in fast enough to keep the queue filled. This causes a permanent delay growth for all the traffic that traverses the queue. If the sender that causes the standing queue reacts to congestion in some way, it might be best to "flush" the queue, by quickly sending so much data into it that significant loss happens, in the hope that the sender that caused the problem reduces its rate.
